Only the fittest cyclists should take on this tour. It features no fewer than three of Trentino’s legendary climbs (Passo Durone in the Comano area, Passo Daone and Madonna di Campiglio) and will take you as far as the Passo Campo Carlo Magno.

The tour starts in the town of Pinzolo in the heart of the Val Rendena and it follows the Sarca stream as far as Comano Terme. That is where you will embark on the first climb of the day: the Passo Durone, which has an average gradient of 6% and should be fairly easy going. Once you reach the top, you will descend to Bolbeno and then head to Preore, which is the starting point for the second climb: the Passo Daone. It is much more demanding than the first, with an average gradient of 9.4% and a length of over 8 km.  After you have conquered the Passo Daone, you will go through Spiazzo Rendena and climb steadily as far as Pinzolo. It will then be time for the third legendary climb: Madonna di Campiglio. Although the average gradient is just 5.7%, it is more than 15 km long and the fact that you will already have climbed more than 2,000 m at this stage will only make it tougher. The ascent ends at the highest point on the tour: the Passo Campo Carlo Magno. From there, you will turn around and go back down the same way you came up, until you find yourself back at the starting point in Pinzolo.

Safety information

Come immaginerai, la percorribilità degli itinerari in un ambiente montano è strettamente legata alle condizioni contingenti e dipende quindi da fenomeni naturali, cambiamenti ambientali e condizioni meteo. Per questo motivo, le informazioni contenute in questa scheda potrebbero aver subito variazioni. Prima di partire, informati sullo stato del percorso, verifica i bollettini meteo e informati presso gli uffici turistici.

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts in the town of Pinzolo in the heart of the Val Rendena. It begins alongside the Sarca stream with a gentle descent that is very long, at just under 20 km. You then proceed on slightly sloping terrain until you get to Comano Terme. That is where you will embark on the first climb of the day: the Passo Durone, which has an average gradient of 6% and should be fairly easy going. Once you reach the top, you can go racing down the slope to Bolbeno and then head to Preore, which is the starting point for the second climb: the Passo Daone. It is much more demanding than the first, with an average gradient of 9.4%, stretches where it reaches as high as 11%, and a length of over 8 km. Therefore, it is essential to pace yourself properly and ensure you conserve enough energy for the third and final climb. After you have conquered the Passo Daone at 1,291 m, you will face a technical descent on a narrow road in the woods that takes you to the Spiazzo Rendena area. From there, the road starts to climb again steadily but not too steeply until you get to Pinzolo, which is the official starting point of the third legendary climb: Madonna di Campiglio. It is a genuinely challenging ascent and it should not be underestimated. Although the average gradient is just 5.7%, it is more than 15 km long and the fact that you will already have climbed more than 2,000 m at this stage will only make it tougher. It ends at the highest point on the tour: the Passo Campo Carlo Magno, where there are amazing views of the Brenta Dolomites and the Passo Grostè. Make sure you take a well-earned break to admire the views after your hard work, then turn around and go back down the same way you came up, until you find yourself back at the starting point in Pinzolo.
